I wonder how the quality of such old basement coal compares to currently available anthracite. One big drawback, I seem to get the distinct aroma of burning mouse hair on occaision on startups. The cache I got from one private home probably sat in the basement for 50 years unused, with the owners tossing in mouse poison from time to time. I'd like to come up with a design for a sifter/washer too!
